Copyright and the Digital Single Market: Busting the Myths

Source: Publishers Association

From Press Release:

Copyright and the Digital Single Market: Busting the Myths, a paper released today by The PA, exposes the major myths and inaccuracies around copyright and the digital single market.

With the European Commission and European Parliament actively considering proposals to develop the digital single market, this paper aims to highlight and rebut some of the most consistently made false charges against copyright.

These range from the accusation that a digital single market is not possible without copyright reform, to the charge that text and data mining is not possible without an exception to copyright.
